Also, make sure your "Screensaver" setting (in Personalize) doesn't have the option: "On resume display log-in screen" checked.

It doesn't depend on whether you've CHOSEN a screensaver or not. If that option is checked, your system will resume from sleep or hybernation on the log-in page. Check and see whether that option is checked. You may be surprised!
